NIKON D4 16.2MP DSLR camera review

The top of the range in full frame DSLRs got some love as Nikon finally announced the successor to the D3S, the D4. As expected, the specs that were leaked out earlier were quite spot on as the D4 features a 16.2MP Full Frame FX sensor capable of an ISO range from 100 - 12,800 and also to an extended 204,800 at HI-4. Video capture has also been ramped up to 1080p/30fps and still capture stills at up to 10fps. The D4 also features a new 51 point AF system that offers full cross type focusing and is compatible with all Nikon Lenses even paired with a teleconveter.

One of the coolest things is that the D4 will support both UDMA-7 CF cards as well as the recently announced XQD format of cards which are capable of write speeds of 125MB/s allowing for 105 continuous captures at 10fps.

What's the price for this monstrousous beast? A cool US$6,000 for the body alone. Then again, if you're in the market for a top of the range DSLR, that shouldn't phase you one bit. The D4 will be available in the US come late February and will be on show at CES next week.
